AUSTRALIA: A father of a teenager admitted to an incestuous relationship with his daughter. He defended his disgusting act by saying that he was giving his daughter sex education.

The 44-year-old dad has pleaded guilty on charges of incest and producing child pornography, reports news agency ANI.

The 14-year-old daughter’s nightmare began in 2008 when she started going out with a boy one year her senior. The father convinced his daughter that ‘he was a knowledgeable source of information regarding sexual activities and was able to teach her such matters’.

“Under the guise of ‘educating’ the victim about sexual awareness … the offender initiated, developed and maintained an ongoing sexual relationship with her,” the prosecutor told the court.

From 2008 until 2012, the man had a sexual relation with his daughter and he forced the girl to keep it a secret from his wife and other two daughters. The girl told the police that she believed that what her father was doing to her was part of a ‘normal’ father-daughter relationship.

However, upon discussing the state of affairs with her friends in school, the girl realised that it wasn’t normal and she should report her father to the authorities.

The father defended himself in court and said that his daughter could have said no at any time in the four years but she never did that.

The prosecutor of the case said that it was the “ultimate betrayal of parental responsibility”.
